If you are on a budget but still want some home comforts, this is the place for you.
It had been closed for a while before the present owners started operating the motel last year and you can see that they are steadily working through improvements to bring things up to date. Some things have already been modernised - the roof and carpets looked new to me and we had a flat screen TV with freeview channels. The fixtures seemed to be a work in progress and were a little dated, but everything was clean and in working order
We had a one bedroom unit with an ensuite shower and toilet. There was a microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, crockery and a fridge.
The location is good with a short level walk to the lake or shops and restaurants and the owners, Laurie and Heather, were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction for sightseeing treats such as Aratiatia rapids and Huka falls.
All in all - it was an absolute steal for the price paid
